What are the effects of Bullying?

Bullying makes people upset. It can make you feel lonely, unhappy and frightened. It can make you feel unsafe and think there must be something wrong with you. You can lose confidence and may not want to go to school anymore. It may even make you sick and could also be life threatening and should not be ignored at all.

Some people think bullying is just part of growing up and a way for young people to learn to stick up for themselves. But bullying can have long-term physical and psychological consequences.

Some of these include:

– Withdrawal from family and school activities, wanting to be left alone.

– Shyness

– Stomachaches

– Headaches

– Panic Attacks

– Not being able to sleep

–  Sleeping too much

– Being exhausted

– Nightmares

– Stress and anxiety caused by bullying and harassment can make it more difficult to learn.

– Anorexia

– Obesity

Bullying is painful and humiliating, and kids who are bullied feel embarrassed, battered and shamed. If the pain is not relieved, bullying can even lead to inward (suicide) or outward
(homicide) violence.
